    Well, maybe that 63 explains why he spent all night screaming he was hungry, including a solid half hour of poking me in the face with his face and his paw. If he was on insulin, I would have hopped up to poke him and feed him (more than the 2 times I did) but I was like buddy, you can't be too low. Just lower than he's been all week

    A strong start to our last day on the OTJ trial.

    Now he gets weekly tests for a month and then what?

    Once he/she is through the trial successfully, you enter a new phase. Your cat is still diabetic but has now become diet-controlled. Continue feeding low carb food in the manner successful for your kitty. If you decide to changehis/her feeding schedule, let your meter be your guide to the best times to feed. Avoid medications with sugar inthem and steroid medications unless they are medically essential. Continue testing blood glucose weekly for the first month and then monthly forever. It's a good idea to weigh him/her monthly. Weight should remain stable. If he/she seems "off" or sick, or is showing signs of diabetes(excessive drinking, eating, urinating, weight loss), testhis/her blood glucose right away. Keep the teeth and gums clean and healthy; dental issues can bring a cat out of remission. If you see rising blood glucose numbers, it's time for a visit to the vet!

    72!

    It's official! I can't believe I started fall semester off by driving him to Iowa to see if we could figure out why he was having recurring bouts of trying to die and his glucose wasn't budging at 6u if insulin, mere weeks after his most recent bout of trying to die. And we still have another week of classes before finals.

    Excuse me, I have to go cry a minute and give him a million kisses and tell him he's a good boi

    Congrats you two. It’s been a heckuva ride this past year and I’m sure it felt overwhelming and hopeless at times. Sometimes it’s really rough in the beginning, and in your case, even worse than rough. Kudos for hanging in there and being Charlie’s advocate. Give him a few hugs and scritches for me. :cat:

    Please hang around and pop in once in awhile. I’ll be thinking of you and wondering how Charlie is doing. Plus, your experiences might very well help others. Now, go celebrate!!

    I'll definitely be sticking around to check on all your kitties and continue to learn about feline diabetes and related health issues. Between the FDMB and the Facebook group, I'm pretty sure he would be dead. This is an amazing community of folks, it's like the antidote to Twitter, the best of the internet. And here is an adorable picture that my husband edited for me, complete with party hat.
